Ryobi stuff is actually rather decent.

Voted Hot.

Ryobi stuff is quite good. I have a lot of their cordless stuff with interchangeable batteries.

Looks to me like there's some stuff missing, that maybe should be in the box, like drills etc..

Good price for this model but no rotary stop :shock:

Theres a bosch for £6 more supplied with sds bits, it would probably be better value.

What's a rotary stop?

Stops the rotation of the bit so you can use breaker and chiseling bits.
Very handy and saves a lot of work

I thought that releasing the trigger would stop the rotation of the bit :whistling:

Eeh, you tekkie guys..

I think he means theres no function to just use the hammer function i.e. as a breaker

I would say Ryobi is on par with Bosch if not just slightly under. However for real quality stuff I would suggest to go for makita branded equipment.

Bosch is MUCH better than Ryobi. But your right about Makita they (IMO) are the best brand for drills. Makita all the way if you want something that will last:thumbsup:

Wish i'd thought of that :roll:

Your av' is scary!

So is your nickname :w00t:

IMHO Rotary stop is essential to get the most out out of one of these drills.

The Dewalt deal screwfix.com/pro…862
is much better.
I paid almost £150 for the mains drill alone 7 years ago. Still perfect despite being used as a breaker

never heard of Hilti ?

alot better than all of them

I have one of these and it is excellent.

Ryobi stuff in my opionion (having got one of all three) is superior to the Bosch DIY range (green products) but not as good (or expensive) as the Bosch professional (blue) range.

Screwfix were doing a set of SDS plus bits for £8 when I bought mine and they are still going strong.

Don't know if this is the right place to be asking this, but can someone please enlighten me on just what the difference is between SDS Plus & plain old bog standard SDS (not to mention SDS MAX....) I did try enquiring of staff in several branches of Wickes...but all I got was "I'd stick with SDS if I were you my son"... :?:thinking:

SDS+ has a small shank diameter with 2 splines and 2 locking recesses.

I think old SDS is same as SDS+ but with slightly bigger shank.

SDS MAX has a large shank with 3 splines and 2 recesses.


Go for SDS+ if buying for normal work...
....unless your normal work is demolition, then go for max!

Many thanks owlass
I've got a basic sds drill, i just wondered whether or not the other bits would fit. Nearest DIY store being Wickes & they only seem to stock SDS+.
